Not that I believe at all the reasoning behind acupressure - but my wife and I have discovered that massaging around the sore area on the face leads to some temporary relief from pain. Sometimes it just goes away.
Not in any way related to acupressure. Manipulation of inflamed tissues has always been know to help reduce or relieve it - think "rub it better" for children's bruises. Acupressure would normally involve some pressure point not physically proximate to the affected area.

FWIW on the original topic - I've always found pseudoephedrine is the most effective decongestant available - for a while, possibly still the case in some markets, Sudafed changed their active ingredient to phenylephrine which really didn't cut the mustard.

Hah. Mustard, yes, for natural remedies try eating a spoonful of strong mustard, clear the tubes, it will.
